It's a nice visit while coming back from the floating market. One can see the live work by the artisan. Also a nice place to buy some soveinir for family and friends.

Our day tour stopped here to change passangers going to different sites. Not much to do here, but some amasing wood work can be seen. Artists sit in front of massive pieces of wood, creating extra ordinary works with hammer and chisel. I was amased, as some of these carvings must have taken years to complete.
